PEAR Shape

Pears mostly gain weight around hips and thighs with sometimes a small pouch of fat around the lower abdomen. They tend to suffer more with fluid retention and PMS affected by hormones.

Typical cravings – High fat dairy like creamy cheese, lattes and rich desserts.

Hormone watch point – Estrogen if other hormones like progesterone are out of balance, can promote lower body weight gain.

Foods to eat – Quinoa, high fibre vegetables with brown rice vinegar and fruit. Small amounts of protein like organic chicken breast and white fish such as ling blue cod and non-dairy fats like sesame oils and eggs.

Foods to avoid – Heavy cheeses, cream and sauces, caffeine and alcohol.

Where to get foods – Countdown and Foodtown stock these food items and you’ll find the brown rice vinegar and the quinoa in the health food section or you can get it at SlimmersEdge.
